Emergency Index Vol. 7

Pre-order the latest volume of Emergency Index! My project, Eating & Making Together (Cheese Sculptures), is included in the book.

The pages of Emergency INDEX are open to all who work with performance. In each annual volume, contributors document works made in the previous year. By including performances regardless of their country of origin, genre, aims, or popularity, INDEX reveals the breathtaking variety of practices used in performance work today. Each volume features a comprehensive index of key terms used by contributors in describing and discussing their own work. Begun in 2011, INDEX is a lens for seeing the field of contemporary performance from the ground up.

INDEX Vol. 7 presents 260 works from 51 countries performed during 2017, documented in the words of their creators.

If you have a performance you’d like to submit for the next edition, the deadline is Feb 15, 2019.

Bubbler Gallery

Work by Barbara Felix and Taylor Yocom

Right before I moved to Minnesota this past summer, I completed a project I’m very proud of: The Bubbler Gallery. It is an informal exhibition space installed above some water fountains (locally referred to as bubblers) at the CVPA Star Store building. It is a highly trafficked area where students and the public can take in a range of video art by practicing artists from across the country. The second exhibition has just launched – if you’re in the MA/RI area, go check it out!

CAA Conversations Podcast

This is my second year heading up the CAA Conversations Podcast as a member of the CAA Education Committee. Luckily this year I was able to recruit more hosts, so you’ll hear more voices on each episode, which run 15-40 minutes each and feature discussions of art/art history/design education.

This map is a record of the speakers we’ve heard from during our first two years (not all episodes have been published for this academic year – subscribe on iTunes to be notified as each one is released!).

Collection of Gestures

My Social Practice Zines are currently in an exhibition, A Collection of Gestures, at Graceland University’s Constance Gallery in Lamoni, Iowa.

The exhibition also features the work of Catherine Reinhart and Olivia Valentine. This group exhibition brings together three socially engaged artists that collectively address ideas of collaboration, landscape intervention, shared mending, and education.

The exhibition is open now and runs through December 13. Gallery hours are 9 – 5 Monday – Friday.  Exhibitions are free and open to the public. Please contact Karen Gergely at Gergely1@graceland.edu for more information.
